Rose Ritchie Academy of Irish Dance

Dress Code for the Rose-Ritchie Academy

  Shorts, leggings, or tights must be worn since the knees must be seen to ensure correct technique.  Students wearing pants will sit out during class. 

T-shirts or leotards must be worn since the arms must be seen to ensure correct technique.  Tank tops and half shirts are not appropriate.

During the colder months, please bring a sweatshirt that can be removed, and  continue wearing shorts, leggings, or tights with t-shirts or  leotards.

Appropriate dance shoes must be worn at all times.  If a student does not have dance shoes yet, or has forgotten his/her shoes, tennis shoes are appropriate.  Dancing in bare feet, tights, or socks will not be allowed. 

Girls must wear black ballet shoes or Irish ghillies.  Boys must wear black split-sole jazz shoes or boy’s reel shoes.  Please contact Patricia or Rori before purchasing shoes to ensure that the correct shoes are purchased.
